commitment to america. bp supports nearly 250,000 jobs here. through all of our energy operations, we invest more in the u.s. than any other place in the world. in fact, we've invested over $55 billion here in the last five years - making bp america's largest energy investor. our commitment has never been stronger. if you're like me, you've been working you've been working like a dog all year. but you don't need to camp out 'til labor day to reward yourself! mattress discounters' labor day sale is ending soon! rest those tired bones on a queen size sealy gel memory foam mattress! for just $497! get 48 months interest-free financing on the entire tempur-pedic cloud collection. but this sale ends soon! ♪ mattress discounters! >>> in this environment, what do we do with a big diversified worldwide industrial play like eaton. manufactures everything from electrical control products to hydraulics, truck transmissions. last year eaton bought cooper industries doubling down which is a big reason i own the stock for my charitable trust. here's the thing, though, despite being a fabulously run comp
this week everybody is off. that's the way it is in america. executives, pr executives are also gone. >> i totally disagree. >> reporter: i expect you would. i'm throwing this out there. >> they didn't have a phone? >> the pr executive is not on vacation on mars. he has a cell phone. let's be clear. we shouldn't be surprised about this because based on the nasdaq's response to the flash crash, the nasdaq's response to facebook, this is par for the course. >> reporter: i agree. but what i'm saying is what we've learned, again, in second oddly worded statement is effectively this, it wasn't the nasdaq. it was a third-party participant with some weird connectivity issue, apparently. so i'm only pushing back a little bit not because i'm standing here. nobody is here. nobody will throw me out. it would take two twice to do it anyway. it's a third-party maybe they didn't know. >> tom, founder of staples talked to me tonight on a differentict but we went through this a little bit. he used to be a board member. a very big supporter of greifeld. he said he didn't know. and the reason there's no sta

[ male announcer ] while some companies are new to home security, adt has been helping to save lives for over 135 years. we have more monitoring centers, more of tomorrow's technology right here today, and more value. 24/7 monitoring against burglary, fire, and high levels of carbon monoxide starting at just over $1 a day. and now get adt installed for just $99. isn't your family worth america's number-one security company? current adt customers call for special upgrade saveings. after buying two of e
rights activist louis farrakhan. take a listen to this. >> the government of america can not solve our problems. the fact is that when president obama was sworn in on january 20th, 2009, the black unemployment rate was 12.7%. it now stands at 13.8%. charles: well, liz, he said the government's not doing enough to fix the problems. of course he had the numbers to back it up. >> black unemployment rate is double what it is for whites but it is trending down. it was 16.5% in 2011. but the fact is, the government can not fix anybody's unemployment rate. the economy is bad for everybody. charles: what i think is interesting, is that, essentially what i think what he's trying to say, at the end of the day you just said it. we have to fix it, we, individuals. start with yourself and you work through the community. ultimately the government can't do what you are supposed to do for yourself. >> that's right. but his point is black unemployment rate has always been very bad for the last 50 years, at recession levels. that is what lewis farrakhan. charles: government is no magic elixer. new devel
lack of doing anything other than lob a couple of cruz missiles down range. they'll worry about america's commitment to the middle east will say this is the best they can do? so i'm a bit confused, like all of us are, about what the administration is trying to do. >> yeah. syria, if this is the best punch they can throw, i'm sure syria can take it. just my thought. i expressed this last night. i'm no military expert, lord knows. if we're going to bomb, why don't we take out the government palaces, the government office buildings, military barracks, various military hears. why don't we make it plain that we're going in to take out the chemical weapons. apparently we have weapons that can do that. maybe the army in syria will get so darn angry that they'll take assad, put him in jail or even worse, assassinate him. do you see what i'm saying in why aren't we hitting everything along the way instead of making light of this? why don't we hit tremendous shocks and punches rather than weany jabs? >> that was the point i was making in my column today. we should be striking the symbols, the phy
to the ea complete. there are on the national mall our president whose story reflects the promise of america will help us honor the man who inspired millions to redeem that promise. president bush refers to the promise of america that is reflected in president obama. when we think about that, how significant does that weigh on this presidency that basically barack obama really personifies, comes to life as the dream of mlk? >> good for george w. bush. i thought it was a nice statement. i'm not going to question that. but to say this. at least back in 1939 when marion anderson had to sing here, "my country 'tis of thee" rather than the constitution hall they said the reason because she was black. at least they were honest back then. today in american politics you have donald trump who hangs around with mitt romney talking about the president being an illegal immigrant. you have people talking about nullification of the law of the land. you got people talking impeachment like coburn and ted cruz out there. they never say their problem with obama is that he is black but look at the pattern. the
. it turns out the british are not coming, but france may be back in. america is ready to go it alone either way. we're talking of course about the intended -- apparently intended attack on syria. white house officials saying off the record it could come at any time, most likely after saturday when the final u.n. inspectors leave that country. but the president not getting the coalition he sought. overnight the british parliament turned down prime minister david cameron's request to back the u.s. in that effort. >>anna: you see the cover of the daily news, the british aren't coming, the british aren't coming, saying the president is looking more like the lone ranger than paul revere. parliament coming out a vote not to go a 0 long with the -- not to go along with the unilateral attack against bashar assad. what do you think, brian? >>brian: you've got to get a bigger coalition; they were on president bush. you need more partners. the coalition always included tony blair and the british. david cameron doesn't have the votes and saying i'm not going to go further. this is embarrassing after ne
a to b. we still, though, are the greatest country in the world and what america thinks and does is important. i know that people there are watching our actions, i don't think that we should be anything more than a strong sense of come coming any less than a strong sense of calm. but our leverage is different. and yet at the same time, the leverage that we have, we should use. people still care, we're working with saudi arabia and the emirates right now on issues in syria. so the things we end up having effects more than just the aid. there's no question the monetary part of this is minuscule compared to what's being supplanted by these other countries. but we still have influence. we need to use it as much as we can. but we cannot wave a magic wand and i think sometimes people react in ways that just are not thoughtful when people do things that are counter to what we think as good policy in these countries. certainly we should react and we should react in a measured way. and we don't have all the cards and i know it's frustrating to americans, but we need to be patient, we need
